    This table tracking "typical" thru-hiker progress is based on 240 trail-journal using completing thru-hikers. The heart of the NOBO bubble leaves PA the last week of June and is in NJ and NY in the first week of July.

    SOBO mean date thru-hiker completers at TJ reached certain landmarks:

    Katahdin ME -- June 24
    Stratton ME -- July 9
    Gorham NH -- July 20
    Glencliff NH -- July 30
    Kent CT -- August 21
    DWG PA -- September 2
    Harpers Ferry WV -- September 19
    Waynesboro VA -- September 28
    Damascus VA -- October 23
    Fontana NC -- November 12
    Springer GA -- November 22

    I didn't include this in the article I wrote about SOBOs and how long they take to complete various sections because I only had a sample of 39 hikers. But here it is for what it is worth. And here is the link to that article:

    Hi map man,

    I took a long look at your article. Great work! Looks like it was a lot of effort but well worth it. Just curious, do you happen to have the raw data you used to create these summaries available in a spreadsheet?
    It's all good in the woods.

    I do not. It's all written out by hand. I'm a bit of a Luddite.
